" Not to mention the Farewell to Winterland show of 12/31/78, which cannot be argued against. Just can't. Sorry. It's one of their greatest all time performances."

Goes to show .....

Yeah I can. I think it's over rated. All time best/funnest New Years party and setlist - yes. One of their all time greatest performances? I will definately argue against that.

ooooh. I'm gonna have to go ahead and disagree with you there. (Office Space reference...great movie...wanna argue that one?)

C'mon, man....the Dark Star>OtherOne>Dark Star>WharfRat>StStephen>GoodLovin? That Dark Star is a JOY to listen to....yeah, it doesn't drone on for 45 minutes with screeching feedback and Phil throwing bass notes at nothing for five minutes like everyone's precious '73 shows...but I call that a plus...it's jazzy and focused and spacey without being self-indulgent..one of the best Dark Stars the band ever played...

The Sugar Mag sandwich in the FIRST? Wow. I dunno....seems it's hard to impress some folks. They played their hearts out that night...they all loved that old rink, and I think it showed. I listen to any one of those 3 discs over and over again and i can't find anything but excellence.

Even the first set tunes like STAGGER LEE and ALL OVER NOW have a little extra oomph to 'em.

Oh, well. I guess one man gathers what another man spills.

What's your favorite Michael Bolton song?

Ummm, I dunno. I like them all, I guess.

Oh, me, too. I celebrate the man's entite catalog.

Only if no Kenny G.

I Agree With Pat Metheny (by Richard Thompson)


I agree with Pat Metheny
Kenny's talents are too teeny
He deserves the crap he's going to get
'Overdubbed himself on Louis
What a musical chop suey
Raised his head above the parapet


Now Louis Armstrong was the king
He practically invented swing
Hero of the twentieth century
'Did duets with many a fella
"Fatha" Hines, Bing, Hoagy, Ella
Strange he never thought of Kenny G


A meeting of great minds, how nice
Like Einstein and Sporty Spice
Digitally fused in an abortion
Oh, Kenny fans will doubtless rave
While Satchmo turns inside his grave
Soprano man's bit off more than his portion


Brainless pentatonic riffs
Display our Kenny's arcane gifts
But we don't care, his charms are so beguiling
He does play sharp, but let's be fair
He has such lovely crinkly hair
We hardly notice, we're too busy smiling


How does he hold those notes so long?
He must be a genius. Wrong!
He just has the mindlessness to do it
He makes Britney sound like scat
If this is jazz I'll eat my hat
An idle threat, I'll never have to chew it


So next time you're in a rendezvous
And Kenny's sound comes wafting through
Don't just wince, eliminate the cause
Rip the tape right off the muzak
Pull the plug, or steal a fuse, Jack
The whole room will drown you in applause


Yes, Kenny G has gone too far
The gloves are off, it's time to spar
Grab your hunting rifle, strap your colt on
It's open season on our Ken
Yet I await the moment when
We lay off him and start on Michael Bolton


Oh, I agree with Pat Metheny
Kenny's talents are too teeny

never heard that one but I did hear Methany on Kenny G. " Musical Necropheliac." Man you have to be REALLY pathetic ( case in point ) or worse to get that much wrath from another musician
